Voodoo Comedy Playhouse - Voodoo School of Improv - Denver Improv Classes"Improv taught me how much one’s bravery can inspire and give strength to others. I know there were times when many of us including myself were hesitant or unsure about participating in certain activities but there were always a few brave souls that were eager to jump in. Their bravery was infectious and encouraged everyone to happily join in, leading to a funny and bizarre yet rewarding experience!" - Anonymous Class Survey
